Here, although one person with an extremely strong personality structure is able to induce others to his or her way of thinking or beliefs, a true folie requires some kind of feedback to occur (the induced personalities must also respond) until a whirlpool of delusional communications is created that is so strong at times it is difficult to tell who is the original inducer and who is the inducee.
The drugs are already approved for other uses by the federal agency, so doctors are allowed to use them to induce abortions.
After using hydrogen sulfide to successfully induce torporlike states in several non-mammalian species, such as yeast, worms, and flies, Mark Roth and his colleagues at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle attempted this feat in common lab mice (Musmusculus), which don't normally undergo torpor.
Cathy Yao, MD, PhD, began her presentation by explaining that mucosal tissues are major sites of HIV entry and initial infection, and hypothesizing that mucosal immunization could induce remote mucosal site IgA production.
These results suggest that arsenite could induce the enhancement of agonist-induced vasoconstriction in vivo and this confirms the previous in vitro results (Figure 1).
We extended these in vitro findings of the ability of WNV-Cp to induce apoptosis to an animal model in vivo by using a direct plasmid delivery method as described (9,14).

InnerCool's current internal temperature modulation system, which is marketed as the Celsius Control System[TM], is being used to induce, maintain and reverse hypothermia in neurosurgical patients, both in surgery and in recovery or intensive care; and has also received FDA clearance for use in cardiac patients (in order to achieve or maintain normal body temperatures during surgery and in recovery / intensive care), and as an adjunctive treatment for fever control in patients with cerebral infarction and intracerebral hemorrhage.
Specifically, we tested the hypothesis that arsenic may induce androgen-independent growth of human prostate epithelial cells.
For example, intracellular pathogens, such as viruses and intracellular bacteria, induce production of IL-12 or IL-18 by activated macrophages, presumably after ingestion of the partuculate pathogen, inducing IFN-gd production in natural killer (NK) cells, which in turn drives the differentiation of Th0 cells toward a Th1 phenotype producing IFN-gd, IL-2, and tumor necrosis factor bd (TNF-bd)d (Figure 2).
GX15-070 induced cytochrome c release from isolated mitochondria of leukemic cells and synergized with AraC and ABT-737 to induce apoptosis in OCI-AML3 cells, a highly chemoresistant cell line.
